Spotted Gum Cladding

What better way to show off the natural beauty of timber than by using timber cladding.

Spotted Gum is a popular hardwood timber choice for cladding, being valued by architects and designers for its unique back-sawn grain structure, attractive markings and warm mid-brown colouring. The grain is often interlocked and features some fiddle-back figure. This wavy type of grain is quite distinctive. The high degree of natural durability and strength makes Spotted Gum the ideal timber for external cladding. Spotted Gum is fire resistant, making it appropriate for use in bushfire prone areas.
Our cladding boards come with a tongue and groove profile, making installation simple.
